When we saw this kitchen in a tour at Apartment Therapy, we almost lost it. A dream kitchen, for sure! All that light, all that marble — the table.
This kitchen is in a Brooklyn brownstone, renovated by owners Eli and Jennifer. The kitchen is on the second floor of the building, and it is open to the living room and dining area. The dining table, in fact, is well-integrated with the kitchen; it's really just an extension of the kitchen itself. How lovely!
The 12-foot table was built from 4 joists from a demolition site a few blocks away. They also used many salvaged fixtures in the kitchen, and even the faucet was built out of raw brass pieces from a local plumbing supply shop. The expansive countertops are made of honed Carrera marble.
Some of the owners' favorite elements are in the kitchen: The light shining in, and the counter-height fireplace. That fireplace is active and working, and draws beautifully, says Eli.
We just love this kitchen to pieces. It is beautiful, and spacious and modern without feeling cold. It also incorporates so many vintage or salvaged elements, which warm the space.
